MR. PRESIDENT, NEXT TO THE SENATOR FROM TEXAS, WHO JUST SPOKE, IS THE EXECUTIVE CALENDAR OF THE UNITED STATES SENATE. THERE ARE ABOUT 30 PAGES ON THAT CALENDAR ON HIS DESK THAT CONTAIN THE NAMES OF INDIVIDUALS NOMINATED BY THE OBAMA ADMINISTRATION, THEN SENT TO COMMITTEE, APPROVED BY THE COMMITTEE, THEN SENT TO THE CALENDAR TO BE APPROVED ON THE FLOOR OF THE SENATE. THE REPUBLICAN MAJORITY IN THE SENATE REFUSES TO CALL THESE NAMES. THE PLEA THAT'S BEEN MADE BY THE SENATOR FROM TEXAS, THE SENIOR SENATOR FROM TEXAS, IS "WHY CAN'T WE JUST GET ALONG?" WELL, I HOPE WE CAN. BUT THIS IS A BAD PLACE TO START. close
